Botox ® in Hillsborough Township, NJ
Board-certified New Jersey otolaryngologist Dr. Scott Kay, FACS, offers Botox® injections to the residents of Hillsborough Township, NJ.
What is Botox®?
Botox®, a popular anti-aging treatment, uses an injectable botulism toxin to treat lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox® causes a temporary paralysis of the facial muscles that create lines on the forehead, near the eyes and around the mouth. As the paralysis subsides, and the muscles relax, the lines simply disappear. Although some people end up using their facial muscles less after the treatments, most will require ongoing Botox® treatments.
What are the Benefits of Botox®?
The primary benefit of Botox® is that it causes very little disruption to your daily schedule. Treatments typically take less than an hour to complete, and the non-surgical procedure needs no downtime for recovery. You can leave your appointment and go directly back to work or to any other activities you have planned.
How is Botox® Administered?
Dr. Kay provides Botox® injections with a fine-gauge needle, smaller than those used to give immunization injections. Most patients feel very little discomfort, if any at all. However, if you do feel any pain during the procedure, a topical anesthesia is available. The entire process averages 30 to 60 minutes.
